Saw an ad for it in this weeks Jewish Week, and the website lists a place in Great Neck. Has anyone been and can give any thoughts?

      It is the website for Town Deli in Great Neck. There is no shawarma or gyro on the menu.

        There is gyro on the menu - listed on the first page. I did not see shawarma. My question still stands - has anyone tried the gyro, and can they give any thoughts? People have raved about gyros which I have never seen kosher before.

          Gyro is a poor-man's shawarma, imo. It's just ground up lamb/turkey and spices (oregano, garlic, etc.) on a spit. It's lower quality meat than shawarma.

          It's usually served with a yogurt sauce/tzatziki which is really what differentiates it.

      I was in there for a burger yesterday and asked about www.koshergyro.com. He gave me a sample of the pareve white sauce. It didn't seem to have too much taste.
